Pippo's severe injury, @jksheva7's last-gasp goal, @KAKA's 300th appearance in the Red&Black: do you remember these three #MilanChievo matches from the past?— AC Milan (@acmilan) October 5, 2018
Milan will take on Chievo Verona at the San Siro tomorrow, with Milan looking to extended their winning streak against winless Chievo. The Verona team was penalized at the start of the season because of alleged transfer fee manipulation, resulting in the team currently sitting on -1 points. And while they’ve avoided relegation by the skin of their teeth for a number of years, they’re struggling and have a points penalty. It’s early, but things aren’t looking good for them.
Milan, on the other hand, are coming off an impressive 4-1 win at Sassuolo last weekend and a good come from behind win against Olympiacos in the Europa League this past Thursday.
Milan got Gonzalo Higuain and Patrick Cutrone back from injury after playing without both of them against Sassuolo, and while Pipita got the start in the Europa League, Cutrone’s two goals off the bench sealed the victory for Milan.
Milan have played almost exclusively in a 4-3-3 formation this season, and while the club went with a 4-4-2 formation while chasing the match against Olympiacos, look for Milan to revert their regular formation.
Gianluigi Donnarumma will likely get the start in net, with Alessio Romagnoli and Mateo Musacchio getting the start at central defense. Look for a bit of rotation in the fullbacks, with Diego Laxalt and Ignazio Abate getting the start. Franck Kessie, Lucas Biglia, and Giacomo Bonaventura will almost certainly be in the three midfielders, with Suso and Samu Castillejo on the wings, with Higuain starting up front.
Hakan Calhanoglu might get the start on the wing over Castillejo after his good second-half performance against Olympiacos, but other than that, the lineup looks to be pretty set in Milan’s final match before the international break.
This is a match that Milan should not have a lot of trouble with, but we’ve seen Milan drop points a few times this season already. Hopefully the boys will have put those performances behind them and can get a good win at home.
